Minor roads following Corve Dale were flat and easy. Much Wenlock has an expensive teashop. Route avoiding Telford and the hills of The Wrekin was good. Again minor roads route to Market Drayton and Nantwich were pretty flat and easy. Traffic on the B5074 and A530 north of Nantwich was awful, worst we encountered on the entire trip. Probably due to rush hour. No hills of note on this day, B4378 has a moderate climb on the side of the Wenlock Edge.

Camping at Leahouse Farm was pretty dreadful. Right next to busy A530 so constant road noise. Field was sodden and mostly used as a bus graveyard. Facilities were very basic and not very clean. There is another certificated site at Bostock Green which at a casual glance looked OK and might be a better alternative but a few more miles north.
